What is an Aerial Roof Measurement Report

In most cases, satellite and aerial roof measurement technology is 99% accurate, if you follow a few simple rules. Achieving accurate roof measurements manually isn’t any different. A manual roof takeoff by one roofer can easily vary from that of another.
Measure distances and areas in Google Earth
a2 = b2 + c2 – the square of the length of the hypotenuse (a) equals the squares of the lengths of the opposite sides of a right triangle (b) and (c). Given a2 we use our calculator to take the square root and bingo, we have the length of the sloping side of the roof.
To calculate your roof area, simply multiply your roof length by your roof slope height, and multiply this by two. This should give you the total area of your roof, not accounting for a chimney or other sections of your roof not covered by tiles.
If you know the roof’s angle in degrees, you can find the roof pitch by converting the angle in degrees to a slope, then finding the rise by multiplying the slope by 12. First, find the slope by finding the tangent of the degrees, e.g. slope = tan(degrees). Then multiply the slope by 12 to get the rise.

A roofing square is an area of roof that measures 10 by 10 feet to make up a total of 100 square ft. This critical unit of measurement helps your contractor determine how much material they’ll need to order for your roofing project, from underlayment to bundles of roof shingles.
Multiply the effective length and width of the sheet to obtain the effective surface area. For example, if the effective width is 2.5 feet and the length is 7.5 feet, multiply 2.5 by 7.5. The result, 18.75 square feet, is the area each sheet will actually cover.

How do I get an accurate roof measurement?

Measure the base area of your property

That will be the roof base width. Then, measure the distance of the other side of the structure from the edge of the eave to the other. That will be the roof base length. Multiply those figures together to get an estimate of the base area for the roof structure.
 

How do I figure out how many square My roof is?

Roof surfaces are measured in “squares”. A roofing square is equal to 100 square feet of the roof. To determine the number of squares on the gable roof example in this post, divide its total of 2400 square feet by 100 (2400 ÷ 100 = 24). This means you would need 24 squares of shingles to cover that roof.

What is the cheapest way to replace a roof?

Asphalt Shingles – The answer to what is the cheapest roof to install is asphalt shingles. This is the most commonly used and least expensive of roofing shingles.
 

Is it OK to reroof over old shingles?

Installing a new roof over shingles takes less time than tearing off the old roof. Looks just as good and lasts as long. As long as it’s done right and under the right conditions, installing new shingles over old ones can last as long and look just as good as a complete re-roof. Has the same manufacturer’s warranty.
 

How long does a 30 year roof really last?

The expected service life of a 30-year product, if properly cared for, is approximately 25 years. If it’s not cared for properly, that 30 year shingle will only last 12 to 15 years. That’s one of the big misconceptions in the roofing marketplace.
Roofing material that lasts the longest are concrete, clay or slate tiles. These materials significantly outperform other natural products like wood shakes or any manufactured roofing materials including asphalt shingles and metal roofing.

Why Getting Detailed Roof Measurements is Important & Helpful

Getting detailed and accurate rooftop measurements is important for a variety of applications. Perhaps you work for a construction firm. You may need detailed diagrams of the roof with accurate measurements of the ridges, valleys, hips, eaves, and a clear visual understanding of where vent pipes and chimneys are located on the roof. 

You could also be performing a rooftop inspection and need to properly assess a damaged area for an accurate estimate for repair. Or perhaps you need to calculate the area of your roof to estimate the cost of getting it re-shingled or get a quote for a solar panel installation.

Drones present a unique opportunity for getting a clear view of your rooftop and allowing you to get precise roof measurements. A variety of roof measuring applications and programs already take advantage of high-resolution drone imagery to get accurate roof measurements.

How Aerial Roofing Measurements Work

For a tool that can be so valuable to your company, aerial roof measurements are actually quite simple. Planes or drones capture images of residential and commercial properties from the sky. From these images, a report with accurate measurements of a roof’s area, length, and pitch is generated. Details typically include measurement of a roof’s ridges, hips, valleys, rakes, eaves, flashing, and step flashing.

Our aerial roof measurement reports are drafted by expert CAD technicians and reviewed by a quality assurance professional, certifying absolute data accuracy on every report. Precision is paramount at Sky Roof Measure, and that’s how we guarantee a 95% or better accuracy rate on every plane, eave, rake, ridge, hip and valley. Be confident in your bids, and submit estimates that align to your profit goals.

What Is a Roofing Square?

In roofing, one square equals 10 X 10 ft., or 100 sq. ft. This unit of measurement determines how many shingles you’ll need for every 100 sq. ft. of rooftop. As you prepare for your roofing project, you’ll use squares to determine the amount of roofing materials you need, from asphalt shingles down to the underlayment.

Email: [email protected]

How to Calculate a Roofing Square

Before beginning, make sure you can safely access your roof—if you can’t, contact a roofing professional for help.

Grab your measuring tape, level, pen and paper, roof safety equipment, and your ladder. With these in hand, you can measure your roof in five simple steps.

  1. Determine the number of planes. Your roof is made up of planes. If you have a flat roof, it has one plane. If you have a simple gable roof, it has two planes. The more architectural details your roof has, the more planes you will have to measure.
  2. Measure each plane. Find the length and width of each plane. Then, multiply those two numbers together to find the square footage of that plane. For example, a 35 ft. X 36 ft. plane = 1260 sq. ft.
  3. Find the total of all the planes. Add the square footage for each roof plane into one total. 1,260 sq. ft. + 1,260 sq. ft. = 2,520 sq. ft.
  4. Divide to find the squares. To find how many squares are on your roof, divide the total square footage of all your planes by 100. In our example, the total was 25.2 squares — 2,520 sq. ft. divided by 100.
  5. Remember the roof slope. Roof slope indicates how steep your roof is and may increase the number of squares of materials you need. Roof slope is calculated by determining how many inches a roof rises vertically for every 12 inches it extends horizontally. For example, if that vertical rise is 4 inches, the slope is 4:12.

You can use an online shingle calculator or roof slope calculator to help run the calculations. Once you know the total number of squares you want to cover, consider adding up to 10% in overage to account for error and installation.

STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE: HOW TO MEASURE A ROOF FOR METAL ROOFING INSTALLATION

It’s important to measure your metal roof before you begin your project so that you can estimate your metal roofing material as accurately as possible. Here’s our step-by-step guide for measuring the total roof area for installation:

Step 1: Start by sketching out a top-down view of your home’s roof. Don’t worry about getting the scale or dimensions perfect yet.

Step 2: Measure the length of your roof. Do this by measuring from one of the edges to the opposite side. Write down the number for the next step.

Step 3: Next, figure out the width of the metal that you’re installing. Then, divide the length of your roof by the width of the metal. For example, your roof’s length might be 30 linear feet (360 inches). Divide that by 24-inch standing seam roofing, and you get 15. This will be the number of panels you’ll need for one side of the roof.

Step 4: Repeat Step 3 for the other side of the roof. It’s important to measure both sides in case they slightly differ in size.

Step 5: Measure from the fascia board (board attached to the roof joists) to the ridge (peak) of the roof. This will determine the length of the metal roofing panels you’ll need for one side of the roof.
